WELCOME
This is the glittering, whirring room of clanging noise
And trying so desperately to care that your
Cuticles will bleed with the effort of it.

Unlocking Apple products.

To your left you’ll see the American President
Standing shiney-shoed on the smooth

But real quick, what kind of fruit tree would
YOU be? Oh gosh, oh gee another
LIKE for me?
MISSING PUPPY
Your Aunt is hollering for her
Second-cousin’s best friend’s
Pure-bred golden!

Into the cages of the free world.

If you look through the door to your left
You’ll notice that the Prime Minister of
Your Country is slyly shoving an oil-slick
Pipeline down some red-skin (racist!) throat
But it’s gOod for the EconOmY soooo…
High-fives all around!
